the record" with greta van susteren, senator john mccain expressed his deep and in no way opportunistic disappointment. >> even from someone like the president, who has never known what these kinds of tragedies are about and the service and sacrifice that people make, it is still just, you know, i can't even get angry. it's just so inappropriate. and i'm sure that the families of those brave americans are not amused. >> jon: i can tell how not angry you are. [laughter] strong and definitive condemnation from mccain of an interview the senator could not possibly have seen as it didn't air until one hour later. and i'm pretty sure mccain stopped watching this show... [laughter] [whispering] so to see the senator commit to something without first properly vetting it was really, well, yeah, okay. i guess that was... [cheering and applause] i think jokes like that are probably why he stopped watching. anyway, i figure give conservatives a night to sleep on it. see the interview in context. perhaps the reaction will be less knee-jerk. >> "not optimal"? some people aren't happy about that. >>
's way. you saw john mccain raise the bar for the president. saying remember john mccain suspend-- he did it a couple of times, but one for hurricane gustav, a knocked a day off the republican convention to try to create a sense of "i'm president." one of the things important about taking the president off the campaign trail in terms of this early vote question, when want president ams can to town he's fly paper and gets people there to the events. what do the campaigns do? they turn those people into solterlz who will then go knock on dispersants on that final push at the end. they also turn them into votes in some states. i was in ohio this week. they were bussing them from the event to the early polling place where the, where the romney forces were watching to see how big of a turnout they got. if he is not on the trail to have that activity happen, then the early voting has to happen by its own but without that strong push from the candidate. >> they will send bill clinton, michelle obama. they will have other people to do this. >> schieffer: john what, about that? the president can't
also for john mccain in 2008. and here's the recycled hand he work for mccain against primary opponent mitt romney. >> mitt romney seems to change positions like the wind. he tells florida he supports the bush tax cuts. but as massachusetts governor romney refused to take a position on the bush tax cuts. where does mitt romney? whichever way the wind blows. chris: and when we come back we've got a perfect storm coming ashore. that could affect things. and we have the big jobs number coming next friday. if it's bad, could it tip the election? plus scoops and predictions right from the notebooks of plus scoops and predictions right from the notebooks of these top chris: welcome back. this friday, we're going to get last unemployment report before the election. will it continue the promising trend we saw last month when the rate dropped down to 7.8%? the lowest since president obama took office. voters, optimism, favor barack obama, in the last nbc "wall street journal" national poll. voters who expect the economy to improve in the next 12 months are for president obama. by huge 40-point
john mccain. >> actually, i am cutting more than i am spending so that it will be in that spending cut. john: what? what expending cut? increased spending to at $3 trillion. but newsday columnist ellis henequen -- ellis henican says i am wrong to be so cynical. he saihe would cut, and he spent like a drunken sailor. >> we all want a president who will say something way before he becomes elected and feel like he is completely, rigidly tied into that in ways that he cannot deal with events as they happen. a lot of stuff happens, some of it was prett bad, and you want a president to is in there being flexible for you. john: he was be really flexible. >> okay. john: when he debated hillary clinton he said -- he complained that government spent some much money on programs that don't work, and he was going to eliminate a whole host of them. >> we need to eliminate a host of programs that did not work, and i want to go to the federal budget line by line, pagg by page, programs that do not work we should cut. john: it would be great if he did. he did almost none of that. just lying. >> well, h
no poll has shown it as close as he says, then you would see mitt romney here. as john mccain was four years ago spending the money that they spent. this is a close race in the sense that all states will be close and this will be a very divided electorate, but pennsylvania remains firmly in the president's call amanda will be delivered by the strong ground game have been building under the leadership of our outstanding democratic chairman and our great executive director. we know how to win elections in pennsylvania on the ground. we are a bottom up party. we understand how to pull it off and we will. iran host: table discussion on pennsylvania politics. josh shapiro is the chairman of the montgomery county board of commissioners, a democrat, and robert gleason, the chairman of the republican party in pennsylvania. we have a phone line set aside for those of you who live in the keystone state. from erie, pennsylvania, good morning. caller: good morning. i have two concerns. if you years back, i had a friend who was disabled in a wheelchair and i pushed him to the voting place of that h
and disenchanted. gerri: last time around the president 66 percent. his competitor at that time, john mccain, 32 percen among young voters. how hard is this at the end of the day when you look at this for people to up sign-on with the president when you can't get a job? >> okay. gerri: sorry about that. i'm asking both of you. >> youngbear voters were an indispensable part of his winning coalition in 2008. 23 million younger voters went and cast their ballot. the vast majority of them went to barack obama. that is why he has these tail mary's trying to get bruce springsteen and in ohio and iowa, trying t a kid young people up to vote for him. these are not college kids thousands are coming out on college campuses. the mtv was swayed. nike said, you won't have any hard-hitting journalistic questions. will these tactics work? they do, but not to the same degree they did in 2008. gerri: the question is all about whether young people go and vote at the end of the day. something that i think is really important. this new ad with a young girl. she is an actress and a hit series called girls. i want yo
me ask you about john mccain. we have recent example of john mccain, a recent example where a candidate called for an end to the campaign. he was going tocampaign. he was going to put up debates and everything else in the last election and he looked a little foolish. so tell me how that works. >> he did. >> explain. >> it's a careful balance here. when you say that you want to halt everything because there's a challenge, a disaster, an economic challenge, you better have some reason for it, something that is coming of it, and you also need to know when to restart. and that's going to be the great challenge over the next couple of days. look, the president of the united states is in an ideal position so long as the response to this disaster is well done. if there's a mess-up, as you have referenced earlier in this show, like in chicago in '79 with the snowstorm, that can blow back on the leader. but if this goes well, if the president comes off well, he gains an advantage here. and for mitt romney, the great challenge is deciding when to go back into a campaign mode and there
the john mccain experience four years ago, no one would actually use that phrase. there are unpredictable ways in which this could affect people. no one wants to be seen as trying to take political of vantage of this. but the effect could include things like not being able to make appearances in swing states, early voting, or power outages lasted long enough, voting could be disrupted. the fact that nobody can really tell -- it will be difficult to get the message out. voters in crucial areas will not be paying attention to the federal election or campaign messages or the last-minute flurry of advertisements that everyone basically sits on cash for if they do not have power. both candidates are losing their opportunity to send their message to voters. there is the unknown impact on the much discussed ground game that the obama campaign was relying on to get the voters out to the polls. you also argue that mitt romney is the one who has ground to make up in a crucial swing states, like ohio and virginia. it will make it difficult for him. right now it is hard to tell whose campaign is goin
on mechanics. and while the romney campaign is certainly a lot better than john mccain's 2008 operation, the more this race focuses on mechanics, the better it is probably for the obama campaign. asked whether the storm could affect early voting, the president said that remains to be seen. >> we don't anticipate that at this point, but we're obviously going to take a look. >>> well, it's the october surprise. that we know. and the thing we don't know is what is exactly the impact going to be? we've got a lot of storm coverage to get to, and we'll get to that next. we'll go to point pleasant beach, new jersey. the storm is already kicking up serious waves there. we'll also head to florida. a state that knows storms well. that's where the president was supposed to be this morning opinion bmorning, but sandy forced a last-minute schedule change. debbie wassermann schultz will join us. >>> plus, we've got a slew of new swing state polls. what's this about minnesota? what do those minnesota numbers really tell us about where and how this race is tightening. >>> but first, we made a big deal
washington, d.c. reporter said about all of this. john mccain. >> for days and days they told the american people something that had no basis in fact whatsoever. that is the president of the united states. also, by the way, he said he immediately ordered action to be taken. no action was taken over seven hours now. we find out the secretary of defense decided not to take any action. said the other day this is as bad as watergate but i said nobody died in watergate. this is massive coverup or not acceptable service to american people. >> dana: it doesn't matter election, they will continue to be on this to find out information. a hearing is scheduled for november 15. one of your old pals, i don't know. i guess i can't call her an old pal. she said this is basically a made up story. >> greg: the definition of a made-up story to eleanor cliff, won the fnc beater two reading theth bitter column by maureen dowd. hood ornament of the main stream media. refusing to acknowledge a real scandal. how is she an intel expert? if she was special agent cliff, somehow related to somebody killed, after cal
... that how it goes. he had an infamous moment with john mccain where he said look the election is over. there is a question of whether he's willing to reach a hand across the aisle. >> if you read bob woodward's book you will see he tried to reach across the aisle and boehner pulled back. he signed legislation that band assault weapons. he was pro-choice an passed obama-care years before obama did. >> it wasn't obama-care, it was massachusetts care. what is good for massachusetts is necessarily good for america. >> he was telling everybody it was good for america when he signed it. >> he said it was good more massachusetts. >> he said thank you, president obama or adopting my plan as your plan. he was a liberal in massachusetts. a conservative in the primary, now he's a moderate. he's a chameleon, not a candidate. megyn: a new ad by two powerful unions takes a hard shot at governor romney calling him an economic traitor based on his work at bain capital. you are looking live at the statue of liberty. the southern tip of manhattan could be under 11 feet of water. >> conditions are deter
in disarray. it is perfectly appropriate to have the questions. senator john mccain and i sent a letter two week ago to secretary panetta but we have not heard anything. and we sent another letter yesterday about the order issued by the president. why wasn't it followed? it makes no sense. >>chris: we have a couple of minutes left, senator warner, yes, this investigation is going to happen after election day, but we will not know the facts when people have to go vote. >>guest: well, chris, again, as pen of the intelligence committee, what we ought not to do is get into some of the issue s echoing what senator udall said about drone assets and some of the we reports that the network has issued, my understanding is the administration has denied. i have an enormous amount of faith in the process that we will take on in the intelligence community at look at this and i have an enormous amount of faith in former deputy head of the state department and the former chairman of the joint chief of staff mullen who are going to be leading this investigation into finding out what, exactly, did happen an
was at john mccain's birthday party. you have those pictures of him enjoying -- they were playing the guitar and hanging out and then his administration's really horrible response which is ironic because george w. bush's brother, jeb bush, is still popular in florida because of the ee fish ensee with which he would handle florida and a lot of the reason that he is still popular in that state. >> explain the connection between jeb and president obama. >> and president obama very rightly has hired the hurricane spoon guy that jeb bush used in his administration. he was always considered nonpartisan and he was somebody who made jeb look really good and now he's working for fema. he's heading fema for barack obama. >> let's go back to james warren. the question now on the table, here we are the monday before the election, a week out now, it seems to me it's not exactly a time out. for the president is it's a chance to be an executive and for romney to show prudence and recognition as a challenger to the president, not as a president. >> one of his problems is going to be if, in fact, the media i
range of people and several republicans. john mccain, robert, secretary of the treasury, a republican. he made sure a lot of the advisers were actually very central. he was not getting very left leaning partisan people around him when he was making a lot of the very important decisions. >> host: just a couple minutes left. let me ask one last question about the tapes, and you dedicated many years of your life to the project of the university of virginia and recording project. talk a little bit both about the value of the tapes antepitfalls. you relied on them heavily, and because of the tapes are so wonderful, we can focus too much on them, and there could be a danger to that. displg absolutely. as you -- >> guest: absolutely. we've been working on these tapes, all six presidencies taped in the white house, since about 1998 when the program was formed, and it's not just me wok working on this, of course, colleagues, students, scholars work on this. we're trying to work through this remarken resource, but they do have to be used with care, and i've tried to do -- be careful about doing
of people. several republicans. john mccain, director of central intelligence, robert mcnamara who wasn't for the political but was a registered republican. douglas dillon, the secretary of the treasury, said he had made sure that a lot of his advisers were actually very centrist. he wasn't getting the left lanning partisan people around him. >> host: let me ask one last question about the tapes you've dedicated your life to the project university of public affairs. talk a little bit about the value of the tapes but also about the potential pitfalls because some of the hudson because the tapes are so wonderful that we could focus too much on them and there might be a danger to them. >> guest: we have been working on these tapes since 1998 we have a whole team of people, colleagues, students, scholars working on this comes a we are trying to work through this remarkable resource but they have to be used with care and i have tried to be careful about doing that in the book. it's tempting to write a book that is the list of transcript and there's a lot of use for historical reference in do
in half. i've done some math, can you see where mitt romney makes up some six to eight million votes. john mccain lost by ten million votes, he could pick up a whole bunch of votes in the nonbattleground states. let's go to our battleground map. i'll show you how easy it is. we have the president winning in virginia, wisconsin is a state that just feels on the ground is something that leans toward the president. now you just give him new hampshire, and he sits at 270, that's with giving romney ohio, that's with giving romney florida. that's with giving him iowa. that's with giving him colorado. that's this issue of the battleground versus the popular vote. >> more to come from chuck todd. thank you very much. we'll be back in a couple of minutes with him. i want to get to our battleground governors in a minute. but i want to start around the table with our roundtable. i mentioned rachel maddow is here from msnbc. carly fiorina, david brooks of the "new york times," ej dionne of the "washington post." i feel like the final stretch is going to be dominated by the fight over the economy. it's
these questions, as you know, john mccain and i sent a letter, month than two weeks ago, to secretary panetta, asking for some of these answers and we haven't heard anything and we sent another letter, yesterday, with the additional information we're hearing directly from the president about the order that he issued. why wasn't it followed? this makes no sense. >> chris: senator warner, we have a couple of minutes left and i want you and senator johnson to also weigh in. senator warner, you know, a skeptic would say, you know, yes, this investigation is going to happen after election day. but, we won't know the facts when people have to go vote. >> well, chris, again, in a number -- as a member of the intelligence committee, what we ought not to be doing is getting into some of these issues, candidly, that -- after what senator udall said, about drone assets and, even the reports your network has issued, the administration categorically denied, i have an enormous amount of faith in the process, and we are going to take on, in the intelligence community, a look at this and i have an enormous a
than john mccain was. there has been no engagement so there's -- there has been a better opportunity for him there, andrea. i think that's what you're seeing here a little bit and i think the obama campaign realizes they have to respond. >> and what about the des moines register editorial, we say editorials don't make a lot of difference but iowa is where barack obama got his first lift by beating the field in those caucuses back in '08. it's got to sting some. >> absolutely. it's a symbolic sting. there was that bizarre kerfuffle between the president, the white house, the campaign and the editorial board. how much did that contribute to this? i think iowa is more important to romney's math than even ohio. that's why they're trying to grab on to this to show that it's evidence of momentum. >> chuck todd, thanks so much from the white house today. and joining me to discuss the final week of campaigning, less than a week and the political impacts of sandy from the democrats' perspective is stephanie cutter. thanks for joining us. what do you do about the hurricane, lost time, lost abi
we saw a real sharp contrast between john mccain and president obama, and i think people, you know, times like this you look to your leaders and see how they hnl handle crises. i think it's not just that he's a quick study. i think he's a very steady lead leader. he's proven that time and again. it is part of being an incumbent that people in a time of crisis get to see how you handle a situation like this. i think he's done a good job. he'll do a good job and that may remind people, this guy is a good guy to have in a storm or a good guy to have in a crisis. it's not just about political study though. >> it is about political study in this calculation with respect to this election, particularly what i've been hearing from the left about how this is going to be some boon or benefit for the president. i don't think the people are looking at it in those terms. i'm certainly as a political analyst don't look at it in those terms. i think the reality of it is the president has an expectation of doing his job. that was one of the shortcomings for george bush was he did not do the job as
now say they're going to vote for remain knee. have you heard anyone say they voted for john mccain and now they're going to vote for president obama? >> i'd be surprised if such a person actually exists. i think that romney is basically counting on the mccain vote, which is frankly not very big. 46% of the last time turnout. so he needs to start with that and build on it. but what we just heard there with paul ryan and mitt romney i think that is exactly the difference between these campaigns. campaigns. president obama can't say that. he can give that speech but no one, his record shows that is not who he is. i think they have a winning argument. i hope they win because i believe romney-ryan will have an opportunity to really address problems and i might say, too, gretchen, on the foreign stage, they're both novice, but i think their instincts are right about american power. i think across the board, they'll do a better job. >> gretchen: check him out on the "new york post." thank you. we're tracking sandy this morning. it will make landfall tonight. for some, the damage already
the cincinnati area. president obama did very well in hamilton county, eliminating any opportunity that john mccain had to win in 2008. so that's got to change if romney is going to win. of course you've got a very important personage in ohio who is working very hard in an area where he has influence. his name of course is senator robb portman, the guy who also played president obama in the debate drills leading up to that october 3rd debate in denver that changed everything in this campaign. bill: yeah. professor, thank you. you know i know you try to gauge like the little nuances in elections and we try to do the same. you can drive throughout ham milton county, west side of town, east side of town and count the yard signs. i'm telling you professor, it is almost 50/50, almost dead-even between the romney folks and the obama folks. if that is a gauge tough to go on based on that but thank you for your time. larry sabato, university of virginia there. >> thank you. bill: he said it. it is a battleground right, martha? we'll see which way we go throughout the day. back to you in new york. martha: f
he wins. here's john mccain. >> somebody the other day said to me this is as bad as watergate. nobody died in watergate but this is a -- either a massive cover-up or incompetence that is not acceptable service to the american people. >> stephanie: says the guy -- who couldn't have been a bigger cheerleader for the iraq war. by the way, did you hear this? mccain -- he dumped on -- powell again. colonel powell. he said colin powell said obama got us out of iraq but it was colin powell who got us into iraq. [ screaming ] >> stephanie: just colin powell? not with a lot of help with you? we would still be there if it were up to john mccain. oh, my god. i'm sorry. the obama surrogates are making me splat. >> the romney surrogates. romney surrogates. >> wmd thing. >> stephanie: romney surrogates. like newt gingrich on nbc's this week. >> actually said virtually every catholic and every fundamentalist believes, life begins at conception. why can't people like stephanie cutter get over it? we all condemn rape.
was not hillary clinton's year or john mccain's. >> barack obama is projected top be the next president. >> senator barack obama of illinois will be the next president. >> barack obama will be e 44th president of the united states. >> barack obama, 47 years old, will become the president of the united states. >> that night when he came out, the look on his face to me looked like someone who finally understood the weight of the job that he had just won. >> narrator: but that night, obama must have believed the bipartisan change he had promised was now within sight. >> americans sent a message to the world that we have never been just a collection of individuals or a collection of red states and blue states. we are, and always will be, the united states of america. >> you have, in obama's case, gone within four years from being an illinois state politician to the most famous person on earth, and you have confiden in both your judgment i out what's the right way to go and your ability to make iouthat way. >> america can change.th our union can be perfected. and what we've already achieved
romney's going to outperform john mccain in a lot of states he's going to lose and a lot of states he's going to win. i think it's fair to say that the idea of the split is very possible. that mitt romney's -- sort of the sheer momentum. and there is sort of two forces at work here in this campaign, right? the obama campaign metrics the census and demographics versus joe, i think what you and i feel like we see going on in this campaign the last two weeks, which is the good old-fashioned, well, which candidate is on his message at the right time, seems to be peaking, and that's romney, right? so the two different forces are converging. and i think in the battleground states, it's left this muddy picture. but i think that's why you see in a pennsylvania and a minnesota where the campaign itself hasn't interacted very much where romney's gotten more benefit of the doubt. so there is some consistency in the nonbattleground states. >> and when you talk about split, you're talking about mitt romney winning the popular vote and the president possibly winning the electoral college. >> that's
